Bc Rich Basses

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by DumbChild, Apr 3, 2006.

  1. Well, ive been thinking about puchasing a Bc Rich warlock, or beast because in my opinion they are supreme appearance wise. However at the same time i dont want to because ive heard they are of a crappy quality. I was just wondering if anyone has either played, or plays one and can tell me wether it is worth buying, or wether i should just look elsewhere cause it suks. Thanks guys

  2. I think your best bet would be to use the search function as I am sure this has been discussed before. I cannot give any personal opinions as I have never played one.


  3. Yea, im currently having a quick look around, but not much luck. Ive searched the net a bit aswell but i seem to be unsucsessful. Ill keep at it
  4. oo cheers man! thanks a heap, your a champion!

    thanks again!
  5. bought my nephew a BC Rich Bronze Warlock bass for christmas in 2004. I tried to get him to get something else, but you know how 13 year olds are.

    Anyway, a year later he realized what he had bought. Well, what I had bought him anyway.

    The strings buzz like a bee hive no matter how you adjust the bridge. There's absolutely not bright tone in the G string, and the B string is so muddy it barely changes note as you move down the neck.

    I used to own a 78 BC Rich Mockingbird. Increbible bass, excellent construction and quality.

    The US BC Rich guitars are great instruments, the rest are hit or miss.

    I've heard great things about the Vintage BC Rich's back when they weren't so mass produced.

    newer ones are good if you get at least an NJ series. anything below that are crap.

    just FYI... I can't compare them to older ones for my lack of experience, but I really like my NJ beast.
  9. Guess the only way to find out is to go to a music store and try one out. I would imagine them to be quite heavy and awkward to play specially as i play more on a diagonal then how ur supposed to.

    I've owned a Warlock and it played rather nicely and sounded great. The only problem was slight neck dive. The Beast on the other hand was one of the most uncomfortable basses I've everplayed. Everything about it was awkward.

    just in defense: you get used to the beast. neck dive & weight solved by 4 inch wide strap

    That depends on the person. I never got used to it because of the bottom half of the bass. It was just too big and bulky for me.
